Hardly room left for a toothpick

IVS Tembe passes Careys Bay en-route to Auckland just after 6am yesterday, full of logs.
The vessel arrived at Port Otago’s Beach St wharf from Timaru on Friday afternoon.
It sails under the flag of Singapore and is operated by Tauranga shipping company, Aranui Shipping Ltd. 


Lots of work being shipped off...
Going to ALK? or just being shipped overseas while Kiwi's go without...




Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

You can help us continue to bring you local news you can trust by becoming a supporter.
